Dream Reach Media
Most actors I know, whether they are just starting out in small town Minnesota or grinding on their 15th year in Los Angeles have two very big and important things in common with each-other.
1 - They do not have a predictable way to make enough to support a healthy lifestyle in a major market such as LA, NYC or London while allowing them to spend quality time on practicing their craft
2 - They do not have a reliable and predictable way to steer their creative career at will and in the direction they would like to take it
I have a video here that explains how to fix this - You can see it here: https://dreamreachmedia.com/draesis/

Instead, they rely far too heavily on chance and grinding. Time consuming or unfulfilling activities that take the focus away from acting and turn their acting career into a "sit and wait for the call" game of chance.
You're likely an actor if you're reading this. Isn't it true that most actors rely on one or more of the following things?
- A (random / non - creative) job that they need to spend 30-50 hours or more at each and every week just to get by
- Several smaller, more flexible (non-industry related) gigs that scatter their attention and time all over the place and don't generate nearly enough to live comfortably (on their own in a descent neighborhood with a good car and travel once in a while...perhaps even start a family)
- A sponsor (parent or spouse) who is currently funding their aspirations & dreams, which is nice for a while but after 2-3 years the pressure of succeeding or figuring something else out starts building up, either because the sponsor gets tired of this dream or because the actor gets tired of relying on somebody else and wants to be independent.
- An industry that dictates to them what kinds of roles they are good for, meant for or supposed to be playing, So they never have the chance to build up the kind of portfolio that takes them in the direction they know they should be going.
Things should not be this way for actors... In an ideal world, they would be able to afford a comfortable life and they should be able to produce and fund their own creative content both for their reels and for the festival circuit and eventually distribution of some kind - at will and independent from anybody else in or outside the industry.
All this should be doable while still being on brand and getting auditions and gigs through conventional avenues. I'm not saying you should replace the industry and do everything yourself, I'm saying have a machine that supports your career and gives you the time and control to do what you want WHILE you're working the traditional system.
Actors should be able to do so while still focusing most of their time on acting because acting is hard and takes practice and it requires a clear mind. You're just better on set if you're not worried about your stability or where your next gig will be coming from. (that's not just actors by the way...that's anybody trying to do a good job at anything. It requires peace and focus).
Having freedom and control is absolutely crucial. And owning your own production company gives you this.
Most A-list actors figure this out eventually. I mean look at anybody from Clint Eastwood to Drew Barrymore. They all have their own production companies, why do you think that is?
Acting is (in my humble opinion) far more difficult than producing in many ways and actors eventually realize that they could easily do the producers job too and have way more control over not just the specific project but their entire careers.
It's really a powerful tool to give you a solid foundation so that the "when is it time for plan-b" questions disappear and you can focus on creativity!
It REALLY isn't. DRAESIS was designed to do exactly that. Take a working actor (who eventually will produce his/her own content anyways) and help him / her reach full independence in as short an amount of time as possible.
I've done it for myself, I've helped others do it, now with DRAESIS I can help you do it.
Having the ability to produce something high-level for your personal gain (wether it be to win an award at a festival or to steer your career in any given direction) whenever you please or need to
Having the ability to boost your resources at will, simply by turning up the "volume knob" of your boutique production company or ad agency all while being able to stay focused on the primary goal of acting. It's pretty straight forward.

I've never liked the status quo and I've never liked people telling me how and when to do things and I've put a lot of work into figuring out how to never rely on anyone else again. And I'm passing what I've learned and built on to actors because I truly believe that it's time to Empower the actors and give them the control they deserve.
A good friend of mine wrote the book "The Power Of The Actor" and she's all about empowerment within the craft. But what about outside of the craft? In life?
That's where DRAESIS comes in.
